How does enshrining the dependability policy into our new CBA look now?

Thank you for finding this. In the end, ONLY THE LEGAL LANGUAGE MATTERS. The lawyers, supervisors, HR, arbitrator, judge, ALPA, will only go by what is explicitly written. If it's not written, it doesn't exist.



This communique is for entertainment purposes only. It does not implicitly or explicitly acknowledge employment with any air carrier nor is any relationship implied. This communique does not represent the opinions or policies of ALPA or JB ALPA and does not represent the collective pilot group, ALPA, nor does it imply collective bargaining, advocacy, or workforce actions intended to disrupt operations.

Being concerned about how long itíll take to get TA2 and if the economy takes a dump is fear mongering.

Thinking JetBlue will start firing pilots for calling out sick is smart guy stuff.

I see your point. However, what you don't seem to get is that with TA 1 we are sowing the seeds of our own defeat. Much longer than 2 years. We are enshrining into it provisions that give management all kinds of tools to use against us (dependability policy being just one), while removing all of the leverage we could ever get (arbitration on new aircraft, industry standard year 1 pay but none of the other ones).

This TA is crafted perfectly to keep us from holding any kind of leverage in the future. What I can't believe is how little they will have to increase our pay before guys will jump at the chance to shoot themselves in the foot.
